Budget - £410 ~ GBP, possibly 30-40 more.
Monitor - I don't know, I have an old one lying around which may or may not be usable - (Amazon link - [ Register or Signin to view external links. ]
Keyboard & mouse n/a currently
OS - I have a Windows 7 pro disc which may or may not work, otherwise I was planning to buy windows 10 Pro from kinguin unless there's a cheaper alternative.
Used for - General use, Light Gaming (Gmod / Minecraft, potentially some other games) No brand new games like BF1, Overwatch etc.

Basically want to have a PC that I'll be able to play minecraft on, without it being 20 FPS

So wait, do you need a keyboard and mouse within budget?
Link isn't working for the monitor. Is it 1080p?

It's pretty old so I'd say 100% nope to 1080p, in which case I'd probably need a monitor too </3 Although please bear in mind again I don't wanna be playing any high current games or anything

And keyboard/mouse I have some lying around not fussed about getting new ones.

Yeah, just realised its an old 1680x1050 monitor. You can re-use it if you want, but I wouldn't so I included a nice 75Hz 1080p monitor with Freesync support so you'll have a much nicer experience with this monitor. 120GB SSD will be enough for your OS and some smaller games but you'll probably want to add an HDD when you have some more money. Ask Novatech to update the motherboards BIOS for you so that it works with the G4560.
